In meinem Garten die Nelken
mit ihrem Purpurstern
[müssen]1 nun alle verwelken,
   denn du bist fern.

Auf meinem Herde die Flammen
die ich bewacht so gern,
[sanken]2 in Asche zusammen,
   denn du bist fern.

Die Welt ist mir verdorben,
mich grüßt nicht Blume [nicht]3 Stern,
mein Herz ist lange gestorben,
   denn du bist fern.

Wohl waren es Tage der Sonne,
Die Bäume blühten im Mai,
Dein Blick sprach Liebeswonne -
Das ist vorbei.

Verblüht sind lange die Bäume,
Der Herbst ist kommen geschwind;
Die Träume, die schönen Träume
Verweht der Wind.

[Gute Nacht mein Herz]1 und schlummre ein!
In diesen Herbstestagen
Ohne Blumen und Sonnenschein
Was willst du schlagen?

Dein Schmerz ist aus, deine Lust ist todt,
Verweht sind Lenz und Lieder;
Der Liebe Röslein purpurroth
Blüht nimmer wieder.

Singend zog er ins Land hinein,
Der falsche, liebe Knabe -
Und du? - Im stillen Grabe
Schlafe mein Herz, schlaf' ein!
